Question :

Should my son be taking a supplement

Dear Ask The Doctor:
Hi, my son and I are both vegan. I have read a lot about B12 and the possible problems for defficiency. I was just wondering if I should be giving my son who is 2 and a half a B12 supplement or is he too young. If so what brands do you recommend.
